The Elephant's Debt Legal Defense

In October 2018, Pastor James MacDonald and Harvest Bible Chapel elected to file a lawsuit against the authors of The Elephant's Debt, against the authors' respective wives, and against a journalist by the name of Julie Roys.  The lawsuit stems from online commentary provided by the authors at the website www.theelephantsdebt.com.

As this case winds its way through the system, the authors and their wives are going to incur ongoing legal costs that are needed to defend their case in Cook County, IL.  These legal costs include everything from filing motions to issuing subpoenas, to taking depositions, and preparing for trial. 

Furthermore, as the legal costs accrue, funds will be withdrawn on an as needed basis, and they will be distributed between Ryan Mahoney and Scott Bryant as the need dictates.

If you would like to financially support the authors and their wives, you may do so through this Go Fund Me campaign.

In the future, should additional funding be required, we will launch other small campaigns like this to pay the bills as they accrue.  This is our way of trying not to raise too much money on the front end. 

Finally, when the case reaches its conclusion, any money that was given by donors in excess of our legal fees and other related expenses will be returned to donors on a proportional basis. 

We thank you for standing with us in this season.

Sincerely,

  Scott Bryant and Ryan Mahoney
